So..Is there a best choice?
Or, it's just a matter of taste
If a CMS would be a celebrity..
Wordpress

●
    Very Popular.

●
    Suitable for anyone.

●
    Stylish.
Joomla

●
    Easy to create attractive sites.

●
    “ It just works ”.

●
    Large market.
Drupal

●
    Drupal knows best.

●
    Deeper learning curve.

●
    No problems it can't solve.
Thank you!
